Post-installation setup script for CentOS 7 servers

Hi,

I just sanded down the remaining edges of my CentOS 7 post-install
configuration script and published it on a Github repository, along with
some detailed instructions.

Cron - log when job ends?

Hello,

In trying to resolve a problem with a cron job, we can see when the job starts
by looking in the /var/log/cron log file. However, I was asked if when the job
ends could also be logged. (It seems to be something that crops up every so
often over the years.)

I found on the 'net this article
<a href="https://serverfault.com/questions/248915/crontab-is-there-any-log-with-begin-and-end-time" title="https://serverfault.com/questions/248915/crontab-is-there-any-log-with-begin-and-end-time">https://serverfault.com/questions/248915/crontab-is-there-any-log-with-b...</a>

which mentions a loglevel (-L) option, and by setting this to 2 it will log
when a cron job ends. It sounds great, and just what we could use. The downside
is that there seems to be no such option anymore.

C8 Questions

Hi all,
I've several questions about C8. I'm using 8 on my personal NAS and
works very well. I'm running several VMs with centos 8 and noticed
something:

1) Why corosync, pacemaker and pcs are missing on C8? They are only
available on rhel with payments( rhel ha addons)?
2) Why there is only Gnome as available DE? I use centos on my
workstation and I'm a kde-plasma user. XFCE is ok but not gnome.

About license at redistribution

Now I'm planning to make and sell some measurement system controlled by PC.
There is no technical issue but I don't have enough information about

2) Sell the PC as a measurement device.
3) Distribute DVD made from CentOS iso image file to the user if he/she
needs.

Question 1.
Is there no problem from the view point of CentOS license ?

Question 2.
Should I donate to CentOS community ?

Centos 8 server rebooting...

Can someone provide some guidance with my server, I have a fairly new
centos 8 server, pretty much just a KVM host but I have noticed that its
dumping and rebooting at various times. Journalctl does not go back past
the reboot so I am unable to catch what may be causing it, it appears to be
KVM from /var/log/messages and it appears I should have a kernel dump file
but I am unable to find it.

cli Checking disk i/o

I just built a CentOS7 system on a Zotac NANO PC.

I used a 320GB 2.5" HD I had sitting around and installed with Standard
Partitions on XFS.

The drive is spinning, nonstop.

How can I monitor if there is actually disk i/o to warrant this constant
spinning.

So noatime for all partitions work with XFS?  I did some browsing and
the claim is XFS uses realtime which is better?

Need help modding src.rpms to generate complete SAMBA AD DC binary RPMs for CentOS 8

When RHEL8 and CentOS8 were released, I was looking forward to setting
up SAMBA as a AD DC server for CentOS8. But when I lifed the hood on
the samba.spec file I found the option to build the samba-dc binary rpm
has been disabled for rhel family builds.

Apparently Red Hat does not want to support a unified SAMBA AD DC
environment. I believe we have all of the componentns needed to set up
a fully up-to-date samba-dc binary.

yum install fails - itertoolsmodule.so

printer only prints one page, if anything

I've got a Brother HL-L2360D series printer connected to Centos 7.
CUPS lists it as Generic PCL6/PCL Printer - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.9 .
When I tell it to print a pdf file, it prints at most the first page.

After powering the thing off and turning it on again,
it printed page 3 of pages 3-6 .
On trying it again, the thing claimed it was receiving data
and printed page 3 of pages 3-6 again.

I've tried to delete the printer so I could add it again,
but CUPS won't let me.
CUPS quit asking for a password, it just says Forbidden.

How do I print the pdf file?
How do I keep this from happening agai

CentOS-8 not loading nf_conntrack module

Hi,
On my CentOS-8 box firewalld will not start. It appears to be because the

rpm2cpi and Mock on CentOS 7 and 8 cannot handle Fedora 31 SRPM's

Fedora 31 elected to use a new compression algorithm, "zstd", to
compress RPM's. The result of this unnecessary optimization is that
even commercially supported and long-term-support operating systems,
like RHEL 7 and 8, and CentOS 7 and 8, cannot deconstruct leading edge
Fedora SRPM's, especially the bleeding edge ones from rawhide.

This creates a real backporting problem for people like me who publish
internal backports of leading edge components, or who try to publish
backports from Fedora to EPEL.
